Our assessments are thorough and thoughtfully planned. Our approach is child-friendly and we do our best to be creative in order to make the assessment process as easy and stress-free as possible. Depending upon the nature of the Instruction, an assessment might include:

  • Interview with the child and key adults
  • Play-based assessment
  • Observation in various settings, including school and contact sessions
  • Psychometric assessment, including cognitive assessment, as appropriate
  • Liaison with relevant professionals

Assessments are always carried out by, or under the direct supervision of a fully qualified clinical psychologist. Our reports are clear and comprehensive and give evidence for opinions and recommendations. We expect that our reports should provide the Courts and relevant professionals with crucial psychological information and perspective to guide important decision making processes.
